10 Spots We Love in Washington, D.C.


Opening our Georgetown pop-up has been a dream come true. We're in love with the neighborhood and the store, the latter which is made all the more gorgeous thanks to beautiful blooms from English Rose Garden and an installation of our signature wallpaper. Plus, it goes without saying—getting another physical spot to connect with all of you is an opportunity we never want to pass up.

While we've been busy welcoming new and old gaux girls to our world, we haven't been so busy that we couldn't step out for a bit of exploring. Settling into a new city is an element of the pop-up experience we love, especially when we hit the sweet spot of knowing we have "a place" to grab lunch or the perfect cup of coffee.

Below, our favorite picks for eating, strolling, and shopping. Whether you're a local or visiting for the first time, we hope they inspire you to get out and enjoy this wonderful city.
